Good link KTTE however on futher rummaging I found this little gem (my bold)

Single solders on completion of the Instruction course and permanent staff will be accommodated in Dawson Blk in 4 man room each. http://www.army.mod.uk/royalengineers/org/3regt/housing.htm

So you get to the dizzy heights of full screw (or acting) and end up in a 4 man room for 2 years 8O It used to be hard enough to fill instructor slots before, no wonder RE MCM are making people do it now.

Perhaps a basic grasp of English grammer and spelling would help, in the first instance.

FFS, if you are the future of the Instructor Troop, then it certainly is time to get out.

yes i agree with what you have said regarding the grasp of english, however with OUR time left in the army let the lad get on with it.

i gave just been to gib bks & the majority of the lads there are either 9/59 trained but there are a few of the lads that still wear of proper beret.

Not tired mate, it just infuriates me to see that this is the future of our Corps, with use of the English language that would not go amiss in the Pioneer Corps.

Ok perhaps i am. :):)

A few mates of mine have ended up there, the concensus seems to be that they would not wish it on their worst enemy... that said horses for courses, you know where you'll be for 2 years! (even if it is babysitting).

Also a lot of the blokes, most blokes get bunks, didn't know anyone at gib who ended in 4 mans rooms... that would be gash!

Your welcome for the help, however i do notice that you have managed to find your dictionary. I am lucky that i can sit with all my friends and the lovely lady from the WRVS, i even get free cups of tea. This is the best way to spend my weekends and evenings when everybody else has gone home to mummy.

Regards, the geek boy.

mate, the best thing to do is to avoid it like the plague. I had to do the bloody thing and got well and truly stiffed. I am now serving at bassingbourn, putting in 19 hour days. STAY WELL CLEAR. seriously this is shit mate. Too many people waiting to stab THE CORPS in the back. if you go on it you will definately go training reg. Seriously not a good idea

Jaysus, thats a pretty rough opinion you have there, do all the instructors feel the same?

I have spoken to a few bods who have toured there as instructors, heard some gripes, long hours, back stabbing between NCOs trying to make others look bad, in order to make themselves look better!

I have not heard anyone condemn it as thoroughly as you have.

I am not having a go just interested.




:D (if I was having a go I would put it down to you missing your Diggers) :D

So many would agree with your comments.

Its because no one wanted to be an instructor that RE MCM had to change the way potential instructors were selected - which speaks volumes I think

Got spammed as an instructor a couple of years back - 30 people were picked before me and everyone of them managed to get out of it.

Long hours, loads of backstabbing, shafted by managment, bad duties (bog watch ffs!!) and billys who knew all their rights and did the bare minimum. Not that you can fail anyone without being treated like you have committed murder and a whole investigation about your bad teaching skills rather than them being thick as two short planks.

Never want to go back to a Trg Regt again - rather gouge my eyes out with a red hot poker.

Agree with Cooperman, I spent 2 years at Phase 1 teaching and it was the worst 2 years of my life, we were 6 day a week 19 hour day blokes, with huge 18 man sections in classrooms designed for 10, with no support from above. Phase 2 at Gib is supposed to be less hectic but they are getting lemoned for all sorts of pump duties at the moment, if you can avoid it for now I would, you would be better off going back as a Stripey to phase 1 or a Staffy to Phase 2.

this is a sentiment that seems to be only too familiar within the majority of ex trg regt full screws 8O 8O 8O 8O

You do get some who absolutly love it (or have been skiffed big time by MCM). I know a guy who was a phase one full screw in 97, a phase one stripey around 2002 and is now at Chatham as a staffy! Now that's dedication to ATRA!

Not for me chef, hopefully he would have managed to get a few Fd Army tours in between these postings or he will have very little experience outside of ATRA if/when he returns to the Fd Army. Otherwise he will never have been a Sect Comd or Tp SSgt but could after a Q tour be a SSM of a Sqn near you.

Hopefully somebody higher up the food chain reads this thread and takes note of how lowly the ATR postings are regarded
